Research grants

- Acceleration and radiation: classical and quantum electromagnetic and gravitational, AP.R
### Abstract

The process of radiation by a uniformly accelerated charge, although both fundamental and elementary, has long been a subject of controversy. The conceptual issues are intensified when gravity is brought into the picture, and they have come even more to the fore now that a related effect in quantum theory (named after Unruh), which usually deals with a neutral system with internal degre...

- Semiclassical gravity, entanglement, and information, AP.R
### Abstract

Quantum Field Theory in Curved Spacetimes (QFTCS) makes sound predictions in situations involving quantum fields in the presence of strong (classical) gravitational fields. In the last few years, it has been proven extremely fruitful to analyze QFTCS from the perspective of information theory. Thus, in this project, we intend to study the interplay between QFTCS and quantum information ...

- Semiclassical gravity and Quantum Information Theory, AP.R
### Abstract

Quantum Field Theory in Curved Space-Times (TQCEC) allows us to make sound predictions in situations involving quantum fields in the presence of strong (classical) gravitational fields. We intend to focus mainly on two fronts in which it has been proven effective: (1) study its interface with quantum information theory to not only find new low-energy quantum gravity effects (i.e. for e...

- Acceleration and radiation: classical and quantum aspects, BP.DR
### Abstract

Ever since the works of Rohrlich and Boulware it was realized that radiation is not a covariant concept. They found that uniformly accelerated electric charges should not emit radiation with respect to co-accelerated observers. Since then, the connection between acceleration and radiation and their relation to the equivalence principle keeps puzzling the community. More recently, thi...

- Information transmission, energy transfer, and correlation distribution in curved spacetimes, BP.DR
### Abstract

This PHD project aims to study the communication of classical and quantum information as well as the dynamics of correlations in curved space-times. Quantum Field Theory in Curved Spacetimes (QFTCS) is the ideal tool to study Quantum Information Theory (QIT) in a relativistically consistent way. Thus, in the present project, the aim is to study the interplay between QFTCS with QIT to no...

- Black holes and the generalized second law of thermodynamics, BP.MS
### Abstract

In the last decades, research in black hole physics has shown a deep relation between black holes, thermodynamics, and quantum mechanics. In a semiclassical context, black holes are not black, they have a {\em temperature} $T_{\rm H}\equiv \kappa/2\pi$ and an {\em entropy} $S_{\rm BH}\equiv A_{\rm BH}/4$ proportional to its surface gravity $\kappa$ and area $A_{\rm BH}$ respectively. Th...

- Semiclassical gravity, decoherence, and the transition from quantum to classical, BP.MS
### Abstract

This project aims to study the mathematical and conceptual basis of Quantum Field Theory in Curved Spacetimes (QFTCS) and analyze how the interaction between quantum systems and the gravitational field can lead the former to behave classically. After the study of the general formalism of QFTCS, we will review the environment- induced decoherence programme and the emergence of the classi...

- Semiclassical gravity and a study of the Hawking effect and its consequences, BP.MS
### Abstract

This project aims to study the mathematical and conceptual foundations of quantum field theory in curved spacetimes. The research plan consists mainly on a review of the literature. However, depending on its progress we will do a small original analysis at the end. We will focus on the quantization of free scalar fields on globally hyperbolic spacetimes and its various consequences in t...
